Roman coin on show in London musuem
A Roman coin which was found by Chipping Norton metal-detectors had a day trip to London's Museum of London.
The coin, which usually resides at the Ashmolean in Oxford has on it the head of Domitian II, a little-known Roman Emperor and proves the existence of the emperor who had previously been thought a fraud.
The coin was part of a larger find on farmland near Chalgrove.
